Catchin' Fireflies

source
I'm not sure if you've noticed, but this summer is absolutely flying by! Pun intended? Anyways, I thought I'd do a little investigating about fun facts about fireflies. Check out my story on HooplaHa! And if you find yourself outside at night this weekend, have some fun and catch some fireflies!

Fireflies scare me! We would always go out to catch them, but I would up screeching when I got to close and run away. lol

Something interesting... my hubby's aunt and uncle came from California to our wedding in Kentucky last year. That was the first time that she saw fireflies. She loved them. She has never saw them in California. I just assumed they were everywhere.

i never saw fireflies until i moved away to college. and they vary colors all over the country, based on what i've witnessed. in TN i found them to be green/blue.
one of my fave things ever.

I had no idea they were carnivorous! Does that have anything to do with mating? Like I know praying matises eat the heads off the males after they're done mating so they won't eat the babies...
